84 Lumber donates to Pittsburgh food bank

By HBSDealer Staff - 04/17/2020
84 Lumber and its sister company, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, have donated $100,000 to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

The Eighty Four, Pa.-based pro dealer said the donation was made to ensure that people in the community have access to food during this challenging time.

The donation was announced in tandem with WTAE-TV’s Project CommUnity Day of Giving, held today.

“These are difficult times that we are facing as a nation and as a city,” said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy Knox. “Everyone is dealing with some type of challenge in one way or another. At 84 Lumber and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, we believe that one of those challenges shouldn’t be having enough food on the table. By giving this donation, we want to help lessen this burden for our neighbors.”

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is seeing a significant spike in demand for food as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers have been working each day to provide drive-through pick-ups throughout the region to feed children, families and senior citizens facing hardship in this time of need.

The WTAE-TV Project CommUnity Day of Giving encourages friends, family and neighbors around Pittsburgh to donate to the food bank to ensure they can continue serving those who need it. Each $1 donation provides approximately five meals.

84 Lumber operates 250 stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops and engineered wood product centers in more than 30 states.
